Hi all,I have finally found a relatively cheap off the
shelf temperature controller for a 240 volt 3Kw
It is made by United Automation Ltd Email:-
and is a CSR2-Series
15E power regulator, it is a enclosed triac unit
surounded by heat sink with a inbuilt 6.3mm dia
control potentiometer. I got hold of this from RS
part no. 655-644. It
should be used with a suppressor because it may
interfere with neighbours radio's, tv's etc. rs do a
210-364 contact suppressor which should do the job ok
or Maplin does a YR90X type R-C network uppressor
which would also do. I installed mine the other day
and lo and behold magnificent temperature control. I
intend to fit a multi-turn dial knob with counting
dial thus giving me even better fine adjustment.
Regard and best wishes Ken
